Summer Garden Upgrade Kit - with Leafcutter Bees
Upgrade your summer garden pollination with our summer kit! Simply place your choice of natural reeds or reusable wood trays into your bee house and add our healthy summer leafcutter bee cocoons. Save vs purchase of individual items! How to pick your Bee Ship Date.
Summer leafcutter bees are super pollinators of tomatoes, peppers, squash, melons, and peas - just about any flower.
Our summer leafcutter bees are gentle solitary bees who only fly about 300 feet daily as they forage for nectar and pollen. They are easy to raise bees who prefer 6mm sized holes and use soft pliable leaves like those of rose, hosta, lilac, pea, bean, and strawberry to build their protective leafy cocoons.
You can reuse your spring mason bee house to raise summer leafcutter bees. Just place your choice of the 6mm leafcutter bee nesting materials into the house and add leafcutter cocoons! Or add the summer kit to your DIY bee house.
Select the Monday bee ship date that is closest to when your summer blooms open and your weather is consistently 75F/24C and above.
Keep Bees Cool: Keep your order of leafcutter bee cocoons safe from a hot summer mailbox by upgrading to our 2-Day FedEx Doorstep Service.
